The plugin does not interfere with standard File->Save and File->SaveAs functions so use these as you normally would.

1. Install the plugin as normal whereupon a new entry will appear in CamBam's 'Plugin' menu.
The plugin is 'enabled' by default on the first run when CamBam starts.

2. Use the form that pops up via, Plugins->AutoSave, to set Interval between AutoSaves (in minutes 1 to 120), path to the AutoSave folder (allows to also create a new folder) and Enable/disable the plugin

These settings are saved in Windows' Registry

3. I used the internal method that CamBam employs when you do a normal, File->Save or File->SaveAs
This method takes care of, multiple backup files, overwriting, adding new files.
It uses the setting in Tools->Options->File Backups.
If for example you have this set to 3 then the AutoSave will create 4 files, the 'real' file and 3 backups and it will overwrite these files as time progresses so you end up with the 4 most recent versions of the cb file.

4. AutoSave file naming convention is, the CamBam filename + "_Autosave.cb"
Example: if your cb is called, "MyCamBamFile1.cb" then the AutoSave file will be called, "MyCamBamFile1_AutoSave.cb"

5. The plugin issues status messages in CamBam's bottom log window
